“It’s not that you’re not sexy, we just don’t care!”

Like many alternative orientations, asexuality has previously been a taboo subject in our culture. However, now, along with straight, gay, or bisexual, the term asexual sits as the fourth orientation category, and describes those who experience no feelings of sexual attraction whatsoever.


It’s estimated that 1% of the population consider themselves to be asexual. That’s a staggering 70 million people worldwide, with some of the people surveyed saying they have absolutely no sex drive.

Professor Anthony Bogaert states that there are two types of asexuality; those who do actually have a sex drive but don’t direct it in the direction of other people (instead, they pleasure themselves) and others who simply have never and will never want to have sex.

Bogaert has said that a reason for this could be the overwhelming pressure and importance placed on sex in modern societies. As culture is becoming more liberal, asexual men and women are actually feeling more comfortable with their orientation, and will state it openly.

Although asexual individuals don’t want to express emotion physically, they still form lasting, emotional bonds with those around them and often seek to maintain the traditional lifestyle of marriage and children through IVF and other modern alterations, according to New Scientist magazine.

We’re all for liberal attitudes towards sexuality – the more open, the better!
